Carlyle Group May Buy Major CIA Contractor: Booz Allen Hamilton

March 8th, 2008

The Carlyle Group, one of the world’s largest private equity funds, may soon acquire the $2 billion government contracting business of consulting giant Booz Allen Hamilton, one of the biggest suppliers of technology and personnel to the U.S. government’s spy agencies. Carlyle manages more than $75 billion in assets and has bought and sold a long string of military contractors since the early 1990s. But in recent years it has significantly reduced its investments in that industry. If it goes ahead with the widely reported plan to buy Booz Allen, it will re-emerge as the owner of one of America’s largest private intelligence armies.

QinetiQ Goes Kinetic: Top Rumsfeld Aide Wins Contracts From Spy Office He Set Up

by Tim Shorrock , Special to CorpWatch
January 15th, 2008

A Pentagon office that claims to monitor terrorist threats to U.S. military bases in North America -- and was once reprimanded by the U.S. Congress for spying on antiwar activists -- has just awarded a multi-million dollar contract to a company that employs one of Donald Rumsfeld’s former aides. That aide, Stephen Cambone, helped create the very office that issued the contract. On January 7, QinetiQ (pronounced “kinetic”) North America (QNA), a major British-owned defense and intelligence contractor based in McLean, Virginia, announced that its Mission Solutions Group, formerly Analex Corporation, had just signed a five-year, $30 million contract to provide a range of unspecified “security services” to the Pentagon’s Counter-Intelligence Field Activity office, known as CIFA.

Meet the War Profiteers
by Carlie Cray

Forty-five dollar cases of soda; $85,000 trucks, in need of minor repairs, torched and abandoned; tens of millions of dollars in gasoline surcharges; thousands of meals prepared but never served to the troops, while Third World nationals, paid a pittance by their subcontractors get fed spoiled leftovers; contaminated water served to the troops. These are among the many abuses committed by Halliburton/KBR and its subsidiaries in Iraq, brought to light by a relative handful of whistleblowers and government officials. Halliburton has been the biggest contractor in Iraq, receiving some $20 billion from both its oil and troop logistics contracts, but it is not alone. The Iraq war is the most privatized war in U.S. history, and many corporations have gotten fat feeding off the public trough.Stuart Brandes, author of Warhogs, a history of war profiteering in the United States, suggests that all wars introduce new meaning to the term “war profiteer.”

...This increased use of contractors is creating a novel set of battlefield problems. As the GAO puts it, because PMCs fall outside the chain of command, as well as the Code of Military Justice, they “continue to enter the battle space without coordinating with the U.S. military, putting both the military and security providers at a greater risk for injury.” George Washington University Professor Deborah Avant, an expert on the industry, says while some established PMCs may act very professionally, companies like Aegis — a UK firm whose founder and CEO Tim Spicer was implicated for breaking an arms embargo in Sierra Leone — give the entire industry a black eye and reputation for being “mercenaries.”

When Henry Kissinger is interviewed on CNN as a dignitary (whom most of the world considers a war criminal) it pretty much tells us where the news media is at. Kissinger bombed the left leaning Sandanistas a tremendous democratic movement in Nicaragua, back to the 16th century, then when ordered to pay reparations to the country of Nicaragua, ...the thug and dead ender AMERICAN administration under Bush Junior withdrew the entire country from International Criminal Court.

American war crimes will continue unabated because the sign over Dachau concentration camp is ignored, "Those Who Do Not Know Their History Are Condemed to Repeat It"

The USA behaves like a psychopathic, narcissistic six year old fixated on himself, while
flailing about, screaming to the world that you are the best, brightest, toughest, most miserable sons of bitchs in the valley...all the while you are not winning an illegal, immoral invasion and occupation of Iraq. A surge in an illegal, immoral war crime is NOT success. Good grief can anyone think anymore?

WE are allowing ourselves to be ruled by psychopaths who have virtually no value for human life and prove it every waking minute of the day. We can choose to open our eyes and refuse to be fooled any longer or keep wearing flag pins and turn our brains off as we slide into corporate clonedome. .. working for a machine devoid of conscience and responsible for the torture, murder and incarcerations of millions of innocent souls. If you don't care as long as you make a buck - then live with the fact that you are one of them.
